Reviewer: Setdancegirl 9 reviews from this member

 Stayed here for 5 nights in August - site was ok but nothing to rave about. When we arrived our welcome was '£40 please' and we were pointed towards our pitch - not unfriendly but not particularly friendly either. Pitches were average size and with rows having hedges in between so fairly sheltered. 
Showers and toilets definitely need updating - 2 showers in mens & womens which were free but so they should be as the water was only lukewarm most of the time and operated with a rather knackered push button system so that you had to hold the button in to get a constant stream of water - I found if I let go the water stopped so it was either get stand without water and get cold or do everything one-handed! The ladies block was smelly the whole time which made queueing for the showers (every day) quite unpleasant.
The shop is a chiller cabinet with milk & soft drinks and a few dry goods (no bread or papers) behind the reception desk. There was some tourist info there too which was useful.
The site is about a mile uphill from Coverack. We ate in the pub there one night & food was ok but staff were not very friendly and there was some pretty rough locals (boasting about how many heads they kicked in during last weeks fights!) which is not what you want really! The White Hart in St Keverne was much nicer and does good food.
The best thing about the site is the location on The Lizard which is a stunning part of Cornwall and much quieter than many other coastal areas. Beaches are great for swimming and there are lots of rivers, creeks, gardens and villages to explore which made our holiday very enjoyable.
Would I stay here again? Maybe but only for the location and even then I might try one of the other campsites on The Lizard first. This site wasn't bad but wasn't brilliant either.

 This is the second time we have stayed at this site, which is located in a really tranquil and pleasant part of the world.
The pitches for tents are really spacious and well laid out.  As other reviewers have mentioned, the owners are very friendly and helpful people, with a genuine commitment to improving the venue.
We noticed that the washing up facilities had been improved since last year.  As another reviewer mentioned, the toilets and showers are somewhat 'tired' and for me were the only slight downside.  However, as with everything on this site, they are kept clean and tidy.  I understand that the owners are looking to upgrade these facilities, but they have to make a choice where their money can best be used, as not everything can be done at once. 
There are also plenty of standpipes around, which saves having to trudge a long way for water.  Despite being there in the height of summer, the facilities were never too crowded or busy.  The odd wait for the shower or washing-up sink, but nothing too major.
The site has a nice atmosphere and is positioned about a mile outside the pretty village of Coverack.  This provides a nice evening wonder down into the village for a meal at the Paris Hotel, which does a good range of food.  You'll need your torches for the wander back up the narrow winding country lane though! 
There's also the nearby larger village of St Keverne, which has a good store that stocks practically everything.  By the way, being in a remote part of Cornwall , stargazing at the nightime sky is excellent.

 Once again we have visited little trevothan caravan and camping site quiet and peaceful  as ever.
The laundry equipment has been upgraded and they now provide a clothes rack for surfers/divers to dry wetsuits etc.
The games room now has a pool table and a wide collection of books.
it has a very large playground area for children,even a seperate area for walking a dog.
There are two sets of toilet facilities on site and both are open when needed. Tourist information can be found at reception,we cannot find a better place after going there since 1996 and that says it all, the owners are friendly and helpful.

 We have three small children 8, 6 and 3 and were looking for a quiet children friendly campsite on the Lizard. The camp site was empty with the exception of the static caravans and so very quiet. We soon discovered why as though the days were sunny and warm the night temperature went down to 5 degrees and was a bit too cold for camping. Hey we are new to this and didnt think it could get that cold at easter.
Anyway the kids had a great time roaming the campsite and there is a nice little play area for them. The owners were very friendly and couldnt be more helpful. I would recommend this site to anyone but with one caveat. While the facilities were clean, they were fairly basic with small basins and if the site was busy, as in all 70 pitches were being used would be a problem. As it is was with site being pretty empty they weren't a problem and didnt change our opinion that we would recommend the site and would be back.

 We'd been staying at a site in Tintagel for a few days and was  booked into Little Trevothan for another few days to complete our hoilday down Cornwall. The night before we left our first campsite, my tooth started playing up as I'd had a root canal a few weeks previous. The next day it was still sore but decided to just get on with it. By the time we got to Little Trevothan, my tooth was quite bad. We asked if we could pay day by day, just incase we needed to go home because of it. Surprisingly the lady owner agreed and was very sympathetic to my woes. We were shown to our plot and preceeded to get on with erecting the tent, or rather my boyfriend did, as I just kept feeling dreadful. He managed to get the tent put up mostly on his own and then noticed my distress and declared that we were going to pack up and go home. I very reluctantly agreed but was very disappointed too. We spoke to the husband and he seemed genuinly sorry for us and told us to go and see his wife for a refund. We were so grateful and appreciated them both for their kindness as a lot of owners just care about taking your money and to hell with any problems you may have afterwards.
The site is very pretty and very quiet too - not recommended it you enjoy a bit of hustle and bustle, but perfect if you just want peace and quiet and relaxation. Very nicely laid out too. There are also static caravans and a Yurt for hire (which we was shown around). The toilet block seemed fine, and there had been work going on, as we were there.
The new owners have been there since about January and are really a lovely couple and we wish them every  the success with this park.
Unfortunately we didn't see any of the area but from what I gather, it's beautiful and we definitely hope to be able to get down there again oneday.

 I have visited little Trevothan caravan and campsite since 1996. It is a nice place and peaceful. The owners which have just taken over the site this year gave us a very friendly welcome and made us feel at ease.
Also there is a dog walking area. Play area for the children and a small shop on site.

There is also a small shop in nearby Coverack. The nearest large town is Helston- the nearest beach is Coverack being approx one mile away. Other beaches in the area are within travelling distance for bodyboarding and other watersports enthusiasts.

For the birdwatchers their are plenty of places to watch the birds.
Reading previous reviews about the toilet/shower blocks - efforts are being made to improve them.

 It's in a lovely area; very quiet and secluded. However, the shower block was run down, the wash-up/laundry area was very basic and not very big considering how many campers were on site, and the shop was quite basic.

Pleasant quiet and secluded site near to Coverack. If your looking for a bar
and loud music go elsewhere.
Toilets/showers are acceptable although
when we visited they were showing their
age a little. All usual facilites e.g.
elsan,small shop,play area etc.
If its peace and quiet your after then this site will suit.
